Our Regular Inter-club team opened their home season last Saturday, May 15th, hosting Bermuda Run.
Once again, our guys played well, but Bermuda Run had some exceptional scores (including a gross 62!), and we came out on the short end of a 48.5 to 31.5 decision.
The team of Josh Dalton and Del Long pulled out a ‘halve’ in the final match, saving a sweep by BR.
Once again, team Tanglewood had some stellar play, but it wasn’t enough.
The team of Jeremy Ray and Eli Kennedy shot one, and two-over respectively (net best ball 64), but it was no match for the aforementioned 62, which contributed to a net best ball 58 by their BR opponents.
Eli also continued our Inter-club streak of Aces, holing out on #11!!
It was our second Regular Inter-club match, and our second Ace!
Next up for team Tanglewood is a trip to visit Oak Valley on Saturday, May 29th, where we’ll look to ‘right the ship’ and pull out a tough ‘away’ victory.
from Mark Robson, Senior Inter-club Captain
It’s difficult to win an “away” match in interclub competition, and it’s virtually impossible when the home team has a hot hand.
That’s what happened yesterday as Tanglewood lost 48-32 at Colonial Country Club (Thomasville, NC). Colonial shot a net 64, 65, and 69 in the first 3 matches (7 out of 8 players shot gross scores in the 70’s), and ended up winning 2 matches, halving 1, and losing 1, to secure an easy win over Tanglewood.
We have a chance for payback when Colonial visits Tanglewood in our next match on June 8th.
FYI, I highly recommend playing at Colonial if you get a chance. It’s a fun layout and the Champions Bermuda greens are among the best in the area.
